ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has warned India of severe consequences in case of any misadventure after an intelligence report revealed New Delhi was planning to stage another Pulwama-style military attack to blame Islamabad in coming weeks.

The Foreign Office summoned an Indian diplomat on Sunday to lodge protest against Modi administration's sinister plan against Pakistan.

Foreign office Spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal, in a tweet, said that Indian Deputy High Commissioner Gaurav Ahluwalia was summoned for demarche in line with Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi's briefing of today and warned against any misadventure.

If India resorts to any aggression, Pakistan will give a befitting response, the spokesperson said in a statement.

Earlier in the day, Qureshi revealed that India is planning another military attack against Pakistan in coming weeks, raising the spectre of renewed hostilities between the two nuclear armed neighbours.

“We have reliable intelligence that between April 16-20, India may carry out an attack against Pakistan,” disclosed the foreign minister at a news conference in his hometown Multan.

Elaborating further, he said that India could stage a “Pulwama style” attack in occupied Kashmir to use it as justification for its military adventure against Pakistan.
